Preparing For The September SHRED !

Posted by Susan on August 31, 2009

I am ready and excited to start “The September Shred Challenge “. I am Sly over at Live, Smile, Run started this challenge ! She must have read my mind because I was planning to do “The Shred” this month. I need something quick and effective to do as a workout because my time this month is limited due to a second job I am doing all month.

I must admit, in reviewing the video this weekend I am more than a little intimidated ! Level one looks doable, but Level 2 and Level 3 look darn right scary ! I hope I can hack it ! I have every intention of doing all 30 Days ……. no excuses !

Here are my beginning measurements :

Waist : 29″
Chest: 33.2″
Hips: 34.2″
Thigh : 19″
Arm : 10″

Here is my ” Before Shred ” Photo :
( I workout at home so I have no cute workout outfits ………)

I am all set for tomorrow morning :

DVD set and ready to go !

Mat , weights , and gloves ……… set up and waiting !
My plan is to do The Shred plus 30 min. HIIT on either the treadmill or the spin bike. I am excited to start. I am taking today as a Rest Day because I am planning on not having another until Oct. 1st.
Stay tuned for updates , and good luck my fellow Shredders !!!!!!

    Hi There…. I just went back and read most of your posts from the beginning (didn't get much work done this afternoon!!). Your blog is very inspirational. I am 1.4 pounds away from my goal weight, and very nervous about maintenance. Some of the things you've written on that topic have really resonated.

    Holy ABS! You look amazing!! Good luck on the Shred. You make me want to join the competition…

    PS – I'm kinda new to following your blog and notice you mention HIIT pretty often. What is that?

    I can't wait to see your results! I've wanted to do a Shred challenge for awhile but I've got to focus on the running at this point.

    Oh, and Level 2 isn't that bad at all, honestly!

    Good luck 🙂
